Ravioli with Roasted Zucchini and Mushrooms

One of my new favorite food blogs is Alida's Kitchen. On Valentine's Day, she posted WHOLE WHEAT CHOCOLATE PANCAKES. And yes, that deserved all caps. The girls and I had them for brunch and they were the highlight of the day.

I've spent a significant amount of time browsing her site since then. I love it. It's so bright and cheery and I've bookmarked so many recipes.

Her roasted zucchini ravioli caught my attention right away. I love both roasted veggies and ravioli, what a great combination. I also realized my girls have never had ravioli. How had I gone so wrong as a parent?

I had to add mushrooms to the roasting pan, and they were a delicious addition.

The ravioli is great with just the roasted zucchini and mushrooms. However, there are some people in this house who require sauce. If you are a sauce person as well, come back tomorrow for a post on my best red sauce.

Ravioli with Roasted Zucchini and Mushrooms
Adapted from Alida's Kitchen

4 small zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
8 oz white mushrooms, sliced
2 TB extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp minced garlic (about 4 cloves)
3 TB grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 pound cheese or spinach ravioli

Top with:
1 TB grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix olive oil and crushed red pepper.

Add zucchini, mushrooms, garlic and 3 tablespoons cheese to oil mixture and toss until thoroughly coated.

Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and spread zucchini and mushrooms in a single layer.

Bake for about 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and golden brown.

While the veggies are roasting, bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook ravioli as directed on the package (usually 3-5 minutes).

Drain ravioli and toss with roasted zucchini and mushrooms.

Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Ravioli may be served with or without sauce.
